New bishop visits Bermondsey

The new bishop & his wife at the Community Kitchen
When the Queen appoints a new Bishop of Woolwich, what do you do with him?

Bring him to Bermondsey, of course.

That's how Dr Karowei Dorgu, whose appointment as Bishop of Woolwich (ie the SE london boroughs of Southwark, Lewisham, & Greenwich) was announced on the 10 Downing St website at 10am today, came to have lunch at Bermondsey Community Kitchen at the Blue.

Not only did the new bishop and his wife have the chance to sample some delicious BCK food, they got the chance to hear about one of Bermondsey's best community projects.

Unemployed youngsters are trained in catering skills under the watchful eye of Mike, whose brainchild the Community Kitchen first was.

So far, all have gone off to get jobs in the catering business.

As for our new bishop, he went off, fortified by Bermondsey's best grub, to meet the clergy of the Woolwich Episcopal Area.

Every blessing to him and his family as he moves to south-east London to be the shepherd of the flock in this corner of God's world.
